I had an idea/concept for a guy hanging from a cliff, that ultimately morphed into Mt Dew (on spec) advertisement photography shoot. All of the elements of this composite image were captured by me: I scouted and captured the cliff in Shades State Park in Indiana; the bear was captured at the Indianapolis Zoo; I used my roof, and a vine cut from my back yard to get the perspective, angle, and lighting right for the climber; and snapped the Mt Dew shot as well. I pulled it altogether in Photoshop: matching color, saturation, luminosity, and adding some light streaks to bring the final image together.
On a trip down to New Orleans we had a chance to visit Oak Alley Plantation (http://www.oakalleyplantation.com). There were a number of other visitors there enjoying the day and touring the estate. I only had a minute to capture this image without folks walking up and down the main walkway. I did significant retouching in Photoshop to remove a number of dead leaves from the walkway and the grass to clean it up and remove the distractions. I also dodged and burned the trees in order to bring out the texture and add depth to the image.
We have baby bunnies in our yard. They are about 8 days old. We had to ward off some preying crows (yes crows) shortly after their birth. You'd almost think that we were starting a zoo around this place. At least with the hawk gone for a few weeks, while he heals-up, they'll have a fighting chance. They are so cute--I must say.
